What Three Exclamation Points in a Pope Francis Homily Really Look Like…

From this past Sunday,

I would like to ask you: have you sometimes heard the voice of the Lord which through a desire, a certain restlessness, invites you to follow Him more closely? Have you heard it? I can’t hear you…there you are! Have you had any desire to be apostles of Jesus? Youth must spend itself for high ideals. Do you think so? Do you agree? Ask Jesus what he wants from you and be brave! Be brave, ask Him!!!

Watch Pope Francis in action.

    This kind of style of this Pope is kind of like a Protestant Preaching at a Revival but like the Cardinal of Nigeria Francis Arinze said after the Pope Emeritus announced he was stepping down. “Each Pope has their own own style and their own personality. They will not all be alike.” He was and is exactly correct. Whatever works for him he should and is using it to a great advantage. He seems to be more of a extrovert compared to Pope Paul and Benedict but that does not imply that the other 2 were not effective communicators . Pope John Paul I used examples like Mark Twain to get his message across.

    I love Papa Francis’s style of preaching…he does so with great love, patience, and enthusiasm. I am of Mexican descent and relate quite well to his style. We are Latinos after all but first and foremost, followers of Christ.
